Native Grasses

Native Plants of Arizona

Common Native Weeds

Fountain Grass

Fountain Grass in general creates problems in our natural and native habitat.  Fire spread and crowding out of native plants are just two of the problems with Fountain Grass.


Spurge has many forms and is quite invasive.  It will often be found in the cracks between patio blocks, cement sidewalks and other forms of construction or disturbed earth.  It is a member of the Euphorbia family of plants.

Russian Thistle

Russian Thistle also has the quaint name of Tumbleweed.  Those bushy dry plants blowing across highways in a wind are tumbling weeds or Tumbleweed.
